    Feel sorry for Kieswetter. Him and Buttler had contrasting fortunes in this match but he is clearly the better batsman in the four day game. There is a load of talent with Buttler and imo a better temperament than Kieswetter which should serve him well in the long term but Buttler is way behind Kieswetter as a stand alone batsman. He's lucky to have played as much first class cricket as he has as a batsman at 6 given he averages just above 30 with 1/2 the games at Taunton. Buttler is just too susceptible just outside the offstump to be particularly succesful in english conditions and it would be unwise for Somerset to ever bat him higher than 6 at current as Willis was asking for.
    Yeah, I'm a massive Buttler fan but I found it somewhat frustrating that his century came in a game Sky were showing and when Kieswetter got a duck. Buttler doesn't need his rep inflated, whereas Kieswetter pretty desperately does. Just get the feeling that the casual fan and pundits will start talking up Buttler for the test side before Kieswetter, even though Kiesy has done better with the bat every year, and will most likely this year, and with the added burden of the gloves too.

    Seriously Buttler should be massively down the pecking order for an England spot in test cricket at the moment, and I'd take everyone who's eligible for England in the Somerset top 7 ahead of him if one of them had to replace Pietersen against New Zealand.

    Me too. It's not so much that I'm someone who thinks every good bowling attack needs five bowlers, it's somewhat down to the fact that I don't think the batting alternatives are that much better than him. I mean, Woakes has more championship 100's and a better FC average than the last long term incumbent of the number 6 spot for England, and while Root and Bairstow have played good innings at times, neither has really hammered down performance after performance to nail their spot. Not to mention having a bowler of his (Woakes) ability as a 4th seamer would be a massive bonus. If KP was fit I'd have gone with the same top 7 from the Wellington test, but I'd be pretty tempted to throw Woakes in there to replace him and play instead of Bairstow.

    and I'm as much a fan of him as anyone, apart from Marcus obvs.

    Grecian has this one nailed. Y'all are nothing in comparison

    Agreed though.. had a rant to my mate earlier today when Willis said he should be batting 3 or 4 for Somerset. Absolutely no way.

    I do believe he's in the Paul Collingwood/Michael Vaughan mode of the fact that he'll lose very little in the transition from County cricket to International cricket. He's just so talented and when he gets it right he's just so good.

    Needs to learn his game for Somerset but once he has then he'll have it sussed IMO.

    Telling that he only earned his County Cap today tbh.

    Yeah, like I said to spark the discussion, it's a positive sign that he always seems to do well when Sky are in town.

    Compton is so bad. Just plodding along at less than a run per over when your setting up a declaration at Taunton.

    Cue some very obvious jokes about the Notts captain asking for the heavy roller.

    Excellent win for Hampshire with all bowlers contributing.

    Worcestershire and Leicestershire will not be the strongest teams in the division this year but so far we are doing what we failed to do last year, putting up a big first innings scores.
